their thoughts and feelings are in terms of gun violence in this city or measures that could be taken, but that we also look at it from a professional law enforcement perspective and invite the other, you know, key players in the city, the mayor's office, the board of supervisors, occ, of course, and everybody to, you know, roll up their sleeves and look at the best of what's out there professionally to see if we can't improve on our statistics in san francisco. so that's my proposal on the table. >> i agree. if we can have a presentation with the community present and have the chief explain about what our police department does, for example, with atf in terms of taking guns off the street, i know there's programs in place with that. just anything we can do to help. as i'll say, we're going to close this meeting tonight and commissioner kingsley is going to close the meeting in honor of the victims in connecticut, she'll have some things to say then, but gun violence has had an adverse impact on members of this commission and i see this as an opportunity to protect others from that
and government code. each year the city needs to confirm its appropriations limit under the gan provisions. in this calculation we have done, it reflects through calculations allowed by the state code that we have a 3.77% local income growth and an 0.4% -- 0.47% population growth and this allows for combined growth in the gam limit from the amount that you established last year of 2.53 billion to a new level of 2.63 billion for fiscal year 12-13. under the allowable calculations, we have shown that the budget for appropriations that are covered by this is at currently 2.47 billion, so this reflects a level still 168 million below the gam limit. if the city were to collect so much revenue that it was above the gam limit, the law would require us to either change the rates to return or some other way return that excess revenue to tax payers or go to voters to ask voters to approve an increase in the limit, but we have not reached that point yet. a couple of other points you might be interested in, we did look back at fiscal year 11-12 with the initial budget we expected to be well over 200 m
